During the festive period we know that many people will be out in our town centres enjoying a few drinks and celebrating Christmas. We want people to have an enjoyable, and safe, night out.
Drinking too much alcohol can have devastating consequences on your life and could lead you into trouble with the police.
Binge drinking changes your normal behaviour – it can make you more aggressive and more likely to commit a crime.
Alcohol can also diminish your senses and make you more vulnerable to becoming a victim of crime.
Consider how you would rather spend your Christmas: would you prefer to be surrounded by your friends and family eating a huge dinner, or sat alone in a cell knowing that you’ve destroyed the celebrations of those closest to you? Know your limits, and stick within them.
Excessive drinking can:
Increases the likelihood of you becoming a victim of crime.
Increase the likelihood of you committing a crime.
Result in you being handed an £80 fine by police officers or spending a night in the cells.
